Movies we recommend

These are some of the Hispanic movies we like and recommend… click on the link to read the summaries.

These movies are available in  Alice in Videoland, possibly Alice’s strongest collection are the Foreign Language Films. There you can totally immerse yourself in a veritable feast of titles from around the globe. We have divided this section into regional categories. There are many great films to be discovered within and they make for a preferred alternative to the steady input of Hollywood fodder that generally permeates our screens. Look for films in the Latin American section & Spanish section.

Nueve Reinas – Nine Queens

 

Todo sobre tu madre – All about my mother

Un cuento chino – Chinese Take-Out

Los abrazos rotos - Broken Embraces
